How to pause a DOP network ?

Recommended Posts

I have several DOP networks, which don't overlap, whether over time or in space. I've found a start frame to not have the simulation run before a given frame, but how can  I have a stop frame ? I want to keep the sim as it is , after a given frame.

after your convert your information from dop to sop level, yoou can put down a switch with input 0 being your sim and input 1 being a timeshift node holding a given frame and then input $F > *frame numberrr* in the switch

This is working, but I assume this doesn't stop the sim from being computed ?

The sim is not computed as the node graph is evaluated from the bottom to the top to see what needs to be processed.

Thanks, that makes sense now.. For future reference, here is how I restricted a DOP simulation do only be displayed in range [a,b]:

Two timeshifts, one set at 'a', the second set at 'b'

One switch, with its inputs in this order: before / RENDER / after , with input set to this expression:

if ($FF<25,0,   if ($FF<70, 1, 2)  )
